Abstract: The first soy and tannin based organic aerogels with 91% naturality have been developed by researchers, and they have low bulk density but high volumes of mesopores. In this experiment, the hot disk transient plane source (TPS) method was used to measure the thermal characteristics of the organic aerogels. Results showed that these novelty aerogels are ecologically friendly because they are low cost and renewable but have attractive thermal properties.
